ADSV Mission Statement


ADSV unites the interests of the four life science doctoral schools EDMS, EDNE, EDBB and EDCB. We keep close ties with the representatives of the programmes and the faculty council to represent us on a faculty and university level.


ADSV maintains a pool of motivated PhD students as coaches to help new doctoral students with all aspects of life and work when starting in a new place like Switzerland and EPFL. The coaches are also present at the hiring days to give advice.


ADSV promotes personal and scientific development as well as social connections between students and members of SV. We organize various courses, social events and a big retreat so you come out of your studies well prepared for the future.
